The Skinny on... my next pair of skinny jeans?
If there ever was such a thing as a "holy grail" of jean fit - the skinny jean would be mine. Even before they were the "it" thing, I was always on the hunt for a pair of jeans that fit my legs like a glove (or... sock in this case??? Am I making any sense?)
The skinny jean is perfect for my body type! Now with a new season looming, I am yearning for my next pair... I have currently set my sights on one (or two) of the following:
A crisp white pair, whether it be J Brand 12" pencil jeans (I live in the dark blue ones I bought last summer), or perhaps venture into a new brand - Adriano Goldschmied, pictured below:
The AG store always looks great, I was tempted a couple of times. Everything by the brand seems to be of great quality.
Now on to contender #2, the opposite of a white skinny jean - a bright skinny jean! This red hot pair is by Rich & Skinny (another brand I've been wanting to try):
The third pair is drool-worthy, and expensive :(
A fantastic metallic pair with zippers at the bottom... I most likely will not be getting these, unless maybe I ask for them for my birthday or something, haha I'll keep that in mind.
Seriously, how COOL are these? Too cool!
And last but not least - the destroyed splattered pair - by Chip & Pepper:
Or destroyed & splattered: the gentler version (by J-Brand):
I've been yearning for a crazy messed up pair like these ever since I saw the Balmain SS09 collection. I even contemplated making my own similar pair by bleaching a pair of jeans. However, I think I should maybe leave the bleaching and destroying to the professionals, and start DIY projects one step at a time - meaning I should start by trying to bleach an old T-shirt before moving on to a larger project.
So these were the things that have me yearning for a shopping trip at the moment. Which jeans make you swoon? Feel free to let me know!
